The Greensboro News & Record recently ran an article about BSC Holdings’ redevelopment of the Southeastern Building in downtown Greensboro. The company’s founder Barry Siegal and his daughter and PTAA board member Amanda Williams were interviewed for the story and gave readers a little insight into the long, winding road that the project has taken over the years:
Soon, it’ll be home to young professionals, law students and maybe even retirees living in the apartments on floors four through nine, as well as a restaurant and offices with a downtown view. But it’ll still carry some of that character of the 1920s.
Preserving that character is another factor that has made the project so challenging, according to Siegal. He could have redeveloped the building quicker and cheaper than he did.
But then the building’s future tenants wouldn’t get the large windows, open floor plans and those original brown doors that are being restored for the offices along the third floor. Siegal went to great pains to preserve those little details that tell the building’s history…
He said people have shown interest in the studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Williams said there are about 25 people on the waitlist for them. Rental rates will start at about $700 for the apartments, she said.
